Why Stefano Materassi chose Colognole Rufina

I choose to buy a vacation rental in Florence since it's my birthplace and I want everyone to come by and meet a Renaissance city in our contemporary world.

This is a great apartment for a vacation in Florence or Italy. Its location is the best feature for sure. it is located on "the other side of the Arno" which is a good thing. Less traffic, not as busy restaurants, less hustle and bustle. A walk to the river and historic section is just minutes away. The train station is walkable, but a taxi was a phone call away. As mentioned in other reviews, the stairs to the apartment is not for those who have trouble negotiating stairs or a medical condition. However once you get to the apartment, it is clean and comfortable with all your needs. There is a portable air conditioner which cools the front room down nicely. The bedroom did get stuffy with not much air moving in the room. (i might suggest a fan in the bedroom would make it more "sleep friendly"). If you plan on using the sofa sleeper, it is uncomfortable, not a great mattress on it. we pulled it out to rest on it in the evening time. You can feel the bars underneath you. Stefano, was always available and happy to help out. He set up arrangements for me in the parking garage beforehand for my rental which was very helpful. And answered all my e mails before our trip. (thank you).

Practically Perfect in everyway!

  • 5 of 5
Having never visited Florence, we had asked our friends about what to expect. Everyone said it was the most beautiful place, and IT WAS EVERYTHING AND MORE!

The apartment was a quick taxi ride from the train station, but within walking distance of everything else. It was very well-maintained, spacious and stocked with anything you would need on a long or short visit. There was a hike up the stairs, so that would be the only thing to consider in renting this space for those with physical challenges.

Stefano spoke perfect English, which made us feel so at ease. He was extremely knowledgeable about the city and gave us some really great suggestions of sites and restaurants for our brief stay. He was prompt and assisted us with our taxi pick-up as well.

Stefano was also easy to contact and communicate with before, during and after our stay. He was always and email away. In addition, his flexibility for our check-in and check-out time was really great for our train schedule.

Overall, the city is everything and more than we anticipated, as was the apartment.

Perfect apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this apartment and Stefano was wonderful!! He met us at the apartment gave us tips about getting around town and even call cabs for us because I couldn't reach them with my phone. Then he taught me how to use my phone in Italy! The apartment was perfectly clean and the furnishings were like new.
we walked everywhere. There were a few different markets close by, nice restaurants and cafes. We will be back!!
Thank you Stefano for being so gracious.

Cozy, Quiet, Spacious

  • 5 of 5
We found the owner to be very friendly and the apartment to be wonderful too. The bed is comfortable and the room is very quiet and dark. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly as did the hot water, washing machine and heater. The kitchen was well equipped with all the essential cooking equipment, though you will need to buy your own things like olive oil and seasoning.

If you have a car, parking can be a bit tricky, but you can find spots that are about a 2-3 minute walk from the apartment. The location of the apartment is about 100m from the Porta Romana and about a 10 min walk to the main historical areas of Florence. I enjoyed this location since it was quiet at night.

I found this aprtment to be a great value and would recommend it to other travelers.
